I'm happy to say I've been a fan of Warby Parker since I discovered the company a few years ago. What initially caught my interest is their amazing company value of giving back to the community. Their motto is "Buy a Pair, Give a Pair." So how can I not share Warby Parker's latest Spectrum Sun collection? There are 9 new styles featuring three new exclusive rich colors. I love how there's the classic shapes with versatile colors for those who wish to have that essential pair for daily wear. Then there are more colorful options which I find are perfect for the new season. Let's be real though: I'd probably still wear the cherry blossom color sunnies every day anyway.

With my birthday right around the corner, I believe one these will go right on my wish list or well, my shopping cart.

Beauty Lab: March Favorites


I'm excited to share this month's drugstore favorites. I managed to squeeze in some time to make a Polyvore set of my finds. I love high-end cosmetics (who doesn't?!) but when you're balling on a budget, you find what works best for you. In my case, I love experimenting with amazing dupes.

You're probably scrolling through my blog thinking, "What the heck? Her hair is long then short and now long again!?" No, it's not extensions. I have a few more outfit posts that I forgot to post up before I cut my hair...which is another story I will tell when I get the chance. It was crazy!

I totally wish I could go to this but since I can't, you should go! I love the look book that's posted on the website. It looks festive and absolutely perfect for the warmer weathers. Can I please just borrow that cute floral headband?

How awesome are these kicks? While I'm a shoe girl through and through, I'm immediately drawn to platform heels or ankle boots. Those types of shoes are fun to wear but not ideal to walk in for long periods of time...at least where San Francisco hills are concerned. I'm gravitating towards shoes that are more flat (gasp). I love these because they remind me of Converse meets Chanel-both a little old school and classic.

I promise to update the blog with some past events I've attended. I've got two major tests coming up. Let's hope my sanity is still here by Friday!

Guess what? I'm back on Polyvore! I forgot how addicting it can be to make collages. Once you start, you just keep wanting to make more. I thought this would be a great way to share where I got my items and how I style an outfit.

Anyway, I'm glad it's Friday. I'm off to an event hosted by Clarins at Bloomingdales. Stay tuned on my Instagram and Twitter for updates.

Just a week ago something extraordinary happened. Well, maybe not that extraordinary but for my friends it was. My good friend Kat talked me into going on a road trip to Southern California. Why? To go to Disneyland for their unofficial Dapper Day. My first reaction was, "I can't! I've got a ton of things to do!" It's always the case with me except Kat knows this already. Somehow she managed to talk me into that 7 hour drive and in turn I fast talked friends into coming with me. Suddenly we were on the road, coasting down the grape vine.

Every time I go to Disneyland, I can always feel some kind of magical happiness creeping over me. I end up walking around with a silly smile pasted on my face.  Then coolest thing ever happened: our picture was featured on the Disneyland Today Facebook and Twitter page.


outfit// make believe

I love mixing high and low pieces. There's just something fun about seeing what I can come up with on a budget. It's not about how much things cost or wearing something crazy branded but is it comfortable? And most importantly, will I wear it again? Before I make a purchase, I think about how many different ways I can wear it and if it's a transitional piece. A lot of things I have in my closet are constantly being rotated so you'll see me wearing this skirt again soon. (Forever 21, 12 bucks!)

My two favorite style icons who mix and match effortlessly are Olivia Palermo and Hanh from Life in Travel. Take a peep for amazing inspiration!
